Audi A3 8L DIS Dash Display Dead Pixel Repair
So searching and reading all I could find I came to the conclusion that only 1 person successfully took apart their DIS and successfully repaired their LCD. And that LCD was almost working perfectly to begin with and everyone else who had far worse shape LCDs either made things worse, sometimes much worse, or broke even with no change.
Is that everyone elses conclusion? That you can't really fix these darn things yourself? The heat gun and the extra pressure materiel inserts don't really work?
Is there a success thread I missed or does someone know how to fix it and wouldn't mind sharing the info?
I sure hope not! I see there's an old link to a German shop that repairs them but I'm in the States and don't want to go that overseas route. Someone needs to swing by that German repair shop and spy what the heck they are doing right!!!!
Is there a way to disable the display without taking it apart so you don't have to see it lit up at all?
where to buy a new DIS from?
Can you post a link to a place that actually still sells a DIS for a '98 Audi A3? Are they actually new or refurbed old one sitting on a shelf?
